On 9th March 2008, historians have found what they believe is the first recording of a human voice. Predating Thomas Edison’s first phonograph recording of 1877. The “phonautograph”, created by etching soot-covered paper by Parisian inventor Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville, was played by US scientists using a “virtual stylus” to read the lines. The recording was initially believed to be the voice of a woman or adolescent, but further research in 2009 suggested the playback speed had been too high and that it was actually the voice of Scott himself. This is the original recording.
I am the ultimate in business travel. I am on my own in a hotel near Los Angeles for the week and I don’t want anyone at the hotel bar to talk to me (I am just trying to eat my dinner and watch the game, I don’t give two shits where you are from, business casual bros here for some tech conference) I also have a stack of collected trade editions of comics in my room. Big times. Very professional.
The past week or so I have just been devouring Kevin Smith’s Fatman on Batman podcasts. If you are a Batman fan at all, I highly recommend checking it out. His most recent ones with Paul Dini who wrote tons of the old Batman: The Animated Series cartoons were phenomenal. You would be surprised just how many times Kevin tears up about certain scenes or dialog in batman movies, comics or shows. It is very entertaining to hear someone speak with such passion about a subject. He also has interviews with Mark Hamil (the voice of the joker); the voice of Batman, current writers of the comics, artists, etc. If you love Batman like I do, check it out.
